Fayga Ostrower was born in Lodz, Poland in 1920. Her family sought refuge, and moved to Brazil in 1934, where she began studies at the Fine Arts Association, and later carried on with metal, wood engraving and art history studies. In 1955 she spent a year in New York through a Fulbright Scholarship, engraving under the tutelage of Stanley Hayter.
Ostrower exhibited and won prizes in the international Art Biennials of São Paulo (1951 to 1967), Venice (1958 and 1962) and Mexico (1960).
In 2002 the Fayga Ostrower Institute was founded in Rio de Janeiro in memory of Ostrower, to house her works and documents, and to provide for creative, fine art and interdisciplinary study. She passed away in Rio de Janeiro in 2001.
